Seen this film at Sundance and was absolutely amazed by the acting in it. This film is so authentic, I loved that some of the cast are people from the streets of London. Listening to the director even prior to the screening talk about being excited screening in front of "real" people instead of the usual Sundance industry crowd was refreshing. Can't wait for some of her other stuff. The film feature some amazing cinematography. The scene with the younger brother on the tree with use of sunlight is beautiful.
See this film and watch out for everyone involved.
P.S. I cannot believe Fady Elsayed who played the younger brother hasn't acted before. That guys gonna be a star!
